Nintendo unveils new Wii classic controller


Over on their official Japanese website, Nintendo has announced the Classic Controller PRO for Wii. As you can see, the control pad looks just like the normal classic controller, but adds some grips and extra shoulder buttons into the mix. This effectively brings the pad in line with the style of the DualShock 3 and 360 pad.

No solid details are available on the new pad as of yet, although the image shows it is a wired pad, one that will need to be connected to the Wiimote to use. Nintendo have announced no reason why they saw fit to make such a product, with the other classic controller out there already.

Release date is Summer ’09 in Japan.
